Globalization of Auto Industry is Focus of Gildersleeve Lecture on Nov. 15
Omaha - The second annual Charles Gildersleeve "Know-Your-World" Lecture, held in conjunction with International Education Week at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), is Monday, Nov. 15, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Dodge Room.
The event will feature remarks by Petr Pavlinek, a professor from UNO's Department of Geography/Geology. Pavlinek’s lecture will analyze the globalization of the automotive industry and its implications for the U.S.
Charles Gildersleeve was one of the founding faculty members of the International Studies major at UNO. He was always available to help students with study-abroad independent studies courses, and his guest lecture each semester in the International Studies intro course was a highlight for all students. He took it upon himself to make international students feel at home in class and on campus with his inimitable warmth.
In memory of Gildersleeve’s contributions to International Studies majors and to international students at UNO, International Studies and Programs sponsors the Charles Gildersleeve "Know-Your-World" Lecture every fall semester during International Education Week.
